Mud integrated SD card reader floppy drive




Mud Dr. Moddnstine has converted an IBM Aptiva 1995 to a modern PC, but retaining as many original details. The latter of course asked for a floppy disk drive that meets current standards.

The 3.5 “-floppydrive is linked previously with a 5.25” -floppydrivestekker combined with a USB adapter. So Dr. acquired Moddnstine a “modern” floppy drive. The mechanism for the protective cover of a 3.5 “to open -floppydisk, still functions. In this way, an apparently genuine 3.5 can” -floppy be inserted into the disk drive, and the door slides open, and then data via some acrobatics on the SD card inserted into the floppy disk can be read.

Apart from the conversion of the floppy disk and the drive, the mud also put a lot of time in the production of the whole cabinet to stow contemporary hardware. There was a bit more than just necessary for a soldering iron and a pair of pliers. Welding for example, fell under the applied skills, evidenced by the many pictures of the project on Imgur.

also found Dr. Moddnstine placing an ugly, cheap-looking 5.25 “-bay adapter for USB and io / readers not pretty. That’s why he incorporated an additional USB 3.0 port and audio ports in the front of the DVD drive.

Furthermore, the classic case now includes an Intel Core i7-6700K processor, which is cooled by a Corsair H80i 77.0 CFM cooling water. All this sits on an Asus Maximus VIII Gene micro-ATX board with twice Corsair 8GB DDR4 RAM. If there is a video card Asus Radeon R9 390 in the build and the power supply is a 750W Corsair RM.
